It was already announced at wednesday

"
Dubai's Man Mountain unveiled

By Robert Ditcham, Staff Reporter


Dubai: Passengers flying into Dubai's planned Jebel Ali airport should not be alarmed when greeted by the imposing figure of a 140-metre tall human figure.

The structure will in fact be a 35-storey tower designed to resemble a man dressed in traditional Gulf Arab dress yet another remarkable landmark set to hit Dubai's skyline.

The Dh500 million Burj Al Arabi development will be built in Jumeirah Village and is set for hand over in 2009. When complete it is expected to be featured in the Guinness Book World of Records as the biggest concrete and glass human-shaped building in the world."

------------------------------------

Latest news:

Burj Al Arabi project runs into trouble

Staff Report


"Dubai: Design of the Burj Al Arabi - the 140-metre, 35-storey, human-shaped tower - appears to have run into difficulty as the master developer Limitless has denied that the project has received approval.

Limitless, the global integrated real estate development arm of Dubai World, yesterday said it did not approve the design of Burj Al Arabi as announced by developer AAA Group in Jumeirah Village.

The master developer said in an e-mailed statement last night: "According to Limitless' contract with the developer, AAA Group are compelled to receive Limitless' approval on the design before any announcement to ensure it is in line with the Development Code and building rules and regulations set for Jumeirah Village Master Plan.

"The design announced in yesterday's media has not been submitted nor approved by Limitless," the statement added. It will be part of the Jumeirah Village and is due for completion in 2009."
